Transition Resources for Sixth Form

In order to help with your preparation for Sixth Form, we have developed a ‘virtual experience’ for students who are intending to join us in September. Departments have created a wealth of pre-learning materials, activities and wider reading for you to access.

 In addition, the school has signed up to EtonX’s Future Skills Programme. This is a suite of courses each of which provides 7-10 hours of self-study content.  Each course is fronted by a different Eton College teacher, but the skills learned are generic and useful for all students preparing for further education or the workplace.  The option chosen for FHS Year 11 is the ‘resilience’ course. Instructions on registering will be sent separately by Mrs Harrison-Forsyth.
